Enjoy a Meal Downtown
As you're unpacking boxes and arranging furniture, hunger is likely to strike. Since you might not have your refrigerator or pantry stocked full of food quite yet, we thought we would recommend a few great restaurants in Omaha.
Spaghetti Works Restaurant - Located in the center of Old Market, this restaurant offers diners a unique dining experience as it's housed inside a restored warehouse. Its menu offers something for just about everyone with choices such as Cajun Shrimp Alfredo, Eggplant Parmesan, and Lasagna. This is a place everyone can find something to eat.
Block 16 - Block 16 is known for its farm to table street food. The owners met in Metropolitan Community College's Culinary program, and each menu item is inspired by their families. According to the restaurant's website, it offers combinations that are risky, a lot of fun, and as fresh as possible. Menu options include Pulled Pork Rolls, Croque Garcon Burgers, and Block Burgers (vegan option). This is hands down one of the best burger restaurants in Omaha let alone Downtown. Check their hours before you go, and prepare for a decent wait time.
Twisted Fork Grill & Saloon - Affectionately known as the Fork, it's located in the Old Market District. It's known for serving American comfort food with a "cowboy twist," and diners can enjoy a laid-back atmosphere. Meals include Pitchfork Ranch Meatloaf, Stuffed Chicken Breast, and Apple-Wood Smoked Bacon Burgers. This restuarant has a trendy atmosphere where you could hang out all night. The food is great and you're sure to leave full or with a to go box.
Hartland BBQ - This restuarant is not downtown but worth a mention. Voted for serving some of the best barbecue in Omaha, Hartland is a popular place to eat. The meat is cooked and smoked using the old-fashioned pit style, and everything on the menu is made from scratch using recipes passed down from generation to generation. Options include Baby Back Ribs, Smoked Chicken, and Hardwood Smoked Pork.
